National Geographic: The Art of Exploration

Through May 31 2006

TE_geo-teeming-life_detailFor more than a century, the National Geographic Society’s illustrators have taken readers to places beyond the reach of a camera’s lens on journeys of the imagination to destinations that can be seen only through the artist’s eye. Vivid and compelling, their images have allowed us to witness the birth of our planet and look forward to the colonization of space – helping us to understand our history and the mysteries of the natural world. Renowned artists N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, Charles Knight, Jean-Leon Huens, Tom Lovell, Robert McCall, Pierre Mion, Thornton Oakley, James Gurney and many others are represented in this exciting exhibition celebrating more than one hundred years of National Geographic art.
